Facelift (Rhytidectomy) Surgery
Understanding Facelift (Rhytidectomy) Surgery
A facelift, medically referred to as rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure designed to address the signs of aging on your face and neck. It involves the repositioning or removal of skin, fat, and muscle to restore a more youthful appearance. Some common signs of aging that can be improved with a facelift include:
- Sagging skin on the face.
- Deep lines and creases between the nose and mouth.
- Drooping facial fat.
- Jowls (sagging skin on the cheeks and jawline).
- Excess fat and loose skin in the neck, often referred to as a “double chin.”
Ideal Candidates for Facelifts
In general, good candidates for facelift surgery:
- Are in good physical health without medical conditions affecting healing.
- Do not smoke.
- Have realistic expectations about the outcomes.
- Typically fall within the age range of 40 to 60, although exceptions exist.
This surgery involves incisions around the hairline, ears, and under the chin. It includes repositioning skin, tightening muscles, and removing excess fat in the face and neck. Ideal for significant facial aging.
Focusing on the lower two-thirds of the face, this surgery tightens the muscle layer (superficial musculoaponeurotic system or SMAS) and addresses cheek and lower face issues.
This technique involves lifting the SMAS, fat, and skin as a single unit, providing comprehensive facial rejuvenation.
Targeting the cheek area, this procedure repositions cheek fat and tightens cheek skin.
The Cost of Face Lift Surgery
Investing in yourself is invaluable. The cost of face lift surgery depends on the specific procedure and your unique requirements. In India, face lift surgery offers cost-effective options without compromising quality. Choosing a skilled surgeon and a reputable medical center is essential.
Recovery After Surgery
Following the surgery, you’ll wear a dressing around your head, and surgical drains may be in place temporarily. Stitches around your neck will be removed in a few days, while scalp sutures come out in 7 to 10 days. It’s normal to experience some discoloration and swelling, but these effects subside within two weeks. Protect your skin from the sun during this period.
